... because this is a small bistrô far from the town center - a well-hidden gem that maybe should be kept secret. The restaurant is just finishing renovations that added a few tables and a nice room with thematic pictures of the Andes near Mendoza (where the restaurant name comes from).
You are greeted with a crispy bread and spreads, so you do not have to waste your time (or money) on appetizers. The menu has a surprising variety and so far all the dishes I tried were delicious. And then there is desert: ask for the 'chilenitos' - you will not regret it.
The are a few extras. Since the bistrô shares the space with a deli, they have an extensive wine list (or should I say a wine display?) that includes great wines from the Mendoza region. Their beer choices are many as well. But leaving alcohol aside, I strongly recommend trying the natural grape juice.
So, there it is. A cozy place with delicious food. It is a family-owned and operated business, and they go the extra mile to provide great service.
